be an entrepreneur. passing so many laws and regulations and taxes that they kill the start up businesses in ways that are crazy. >> i have to jump in. thank you so much for talking about entrepreneurship. you were there, you were a part of that. there has been so much destruction to the assistance program. talk about rules and regulations. those are things your administration, when you were the speaker of the house, so many of those types of rules and regulations were built into the program, so much that they have not responded to the recession. it is only able to reach about 30% of the children who are poor in this country. an incredible increase in child poverty been. micro finance would may be a great way to insert into the system. if a woman is receiving cash assistance or food stamps and she happens to, may be working on the side doing hair and nails, housekeeping, child care. fantastic things. that $50 or $100 she makes on the weekend, god forbid she reported to the case manager because she would be criminalized for something that would be celebrated in this country.

, law was less than that. that was a classic compromise that he did not get. another compromise was his promise to repeal the bush tax cuts for higher income. his goal was couples making more than 200th $50,000 or couples making $200,000 and the fiscal cliff deal did not achieve that. we rented that a compromise. let's go to fort lauderdale,. caller: with respect to not keeping a promise for negotiations with a health kicce -- i think that a somewhat wrong. i have watched the other representatives of congress on tv every day negotiating and debating and putting their facts together. the final decision between nancy pelosi and the head of the sun -- of the senate when they finally came out with exactly what the bill would be -- it was done behind closed doors. the putting together of the bills, people putting in their amendments, was actually done on cspan every day and i watched that. secondly, with respect to these people calling about taking away guns. there is nothing about taking away people's guns. if they go through a background check, they don't need to have a gun. the second ame
the federal government have a law regarding that but i think each individual state should enact a legislative negligence act that if you don't fulfill that responsibility of having a budget, you do not get paid and you get barred from running for future elective office. with regard to the debt ceiling, here we go again. the republican party, if it goes along with this deal in my opinion ought to change its name to the caveman party and boehner and mcconnell would be the cavemen in chief, because every time we come to this debt ceiling what do the republicans do? they give in. and every amount of money that this country spends is showing it's unsustainable. we've got to reform them and get our budget in order and we've got to get our spending under control. host: lori who is one of the 65 people on facebook who has commented on this this morning says that this makes the seventh debt ceiling plays the obama's term while the democratically-controlled senate hasn't passed a budget. it seems silly -- logical to me at but he'll -- by the way, it gives an advertisement to our plans for inauguration

daughters, also his sister and his mother-in-law and brother. and it was a short event. only lasted for about 30 seconds. and then afterwards, sort of a colorful moment, where the president was hugging the first lady, hugging the first daughters and then his daughter, sasha, his youngest daughter, saying to the president, "well, you didn't mess up," again, making reference to the last four years ago when they did have those problems and the president saying, "i did it." so, that was kind of the end of this first phase of the president getting sworn in. and of course, tomorrow is the more public event, when hundreds of thousands of people will get a chance to witness the president getting the -- this oath administered at the capitol. >> most people looked at, of course, the first lady, her new haircut and you girls looking so big, as tall as the first lady and you the president, dan. >> all you have to do is rewind some of the tapes from four years ago, just little girls coming in here to the white house we have seen them grow up over the last four years, mostly out of sight. the whi
and work more together to pass the laws that need to be passed. that's all i have to say. host:jody cantor has a lengthy story of this morning on the front page of " the new york times." steve is joining us from with -- ridgway, pa., independent line, good morning. caller: one thing i have noticed since president obama has been president is the continual -- a concerted effort to compare himself to president lincoln, a first in his talking about the book that he was reading -- i cannot remember the title of it -- >> king of rivals? caller: now he is taking the inauguration on the lincoln bauble. there is an idea that some callers have made that this president has faced worst consequences or worse situations than previous presidents i think is somewhat absurd. the fact that he is half-black, there is nothing to it. he is the president of united states and is supposed to be president of everybody. unfortunately, i have lost confidence in the politicians in washington, d.c. and i think the people of the united states should continually boat these people out of office on a regular basis until t
't actually reject their legislation. i don't want to be considered part of that, but i will sign it into law. that is exactly the way that governor bob mcdonnell played it a year ago when virginia republicans got themselves nationally famous with their bill forcing unwanted and medically unnecessary ultra sounds on virginia women, right? bob mcdonnell did the same deal back then. he expressed surprise. what is this you are doing in the legislature, fellow republicans. i certainly did not expect this. this is not my priority. don't associate me with this. and then he signed it, thus earning himself the national nickname ever more of governor ultrasound. same deal. what is this? what are you doing there? i definitely don't want to be famous for that. democrats in the virginia capital tell us that if the surprised gerrymandering bill passes and the governor does sign it, they will ask the courts to declare it unconstitutional. but meanwhile, virginia republicans are also pushing a bill that would also change the state's rules for electing a president. based on the congressional maps that virgin
rights must be absolute, our laws fair, our national beauty preserved, the powerful must not persecute the weak, and human dignity must be enhanced. we have learned that more is not necessarily better, that even our great nation has its recognized limits, and that we can neither answer all questions nor solve all problems. we cannot afford to do everything, nor can we afford to lack boldness as we meet the future. so, together, in a spirit of individual sacrifice for the common good, we must simply do our best. our nation can be strong abroad only if it is strong at home. and we know that the best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation. to be true to ourselves, we must be true to others. we will not behave in foreign places so as to violate our rules and standards here at home, for we know that the trust which our nation earns is essential to our strength. the world itself is now dominated by a new spirit. peoples more numerous and more politically aware are craving, and now demanding, their place in the sun--not j
. that's the word that we are hearing from law enforcement officials, federal law enforcement officials here in d.c. it is a big change from four years ago because four years ago, there were rising threats. there were also nearly 2 million people descending on the city and there were some real fears about what could happen there is still concern and still been game planning every possible scenario, but is there a different tone to the security this time. a, because you've got much fewer people coming. i mean, maybe 600, 700,000 people coming out here. that's big drop from the 1.8 million we saw. it's allowed them to make some changes. some of the bridges from virginia into the city that were closed to you and me last time so that police and all the buses could use them, those will be open. it will be easier access into the city and they learned a lot from last time. so, the secret service is now on twitter. they are going to be putting out updates to help people get around and get people the information they need. so maybe they don't run into as many security problems as you had last ti
